What Highway issues are important to you within the Parish?
Linkinhorne Parish Council has been asked by the Caradon Community Network Panel (CCNP) to make a list prioritising local highway schemes that could be put forward for the Community Network Highways Scheme. Outlined below are Linkinhorne Parish Councils proposed Highways Schemes which could potentially be put forward:
Schemes for the Caradon Community Network area:
• Moveable flashing speed monitor that could be allocated across the network area.
Linkinhorne Parish Council would like to know whether there are other schemes that parishioners and local business would like to be considered or any information or evidence that could be provided to support these schemes.
Please see attached PDF Community Network Highways Scheme for more information.

Linkinhorne, a rural parish in South East Cornwall, stretches from the River Inny in the north-east to the expanses of Bodmin Moor in the west. The River Lynher meanders across the Parish through secluded valleys and by gently rolling fields.
The three largest villages are Minions, Rilla Mill and Upton Cross; there are also the settlements of Henwood, Linkinhorne and Bray Shop as well as dozens of other small hamlets such as Caradon Town, Downgate, Ley Mill, Plushabridge, etc.
The western parts of Linkinhorne parish lie on the eastern slopes of Bodmin Moor, an area of granite moorland, rising to over 380m above sea level at Sharptor, above the Cheesewring, a granite outcrop of apparently precariously balanced rocks. The highest village in the parish is Minions, at 302m asl.
Travelling east from the Moor, the land drops to the gentler hills and river valleys which cover most of the parish. Most of this land is agricultural or woodland; the climate is mild and rarely is there prolonged cold in the winter - snow and frost rarely lasting more than a day or two.
There are no major roads in the parish. Two classified roads, the B3254, running north-south and the B3257 running northwest-southeast cross the parish, providing road links to Launceston, Liskeard and Callington.
